Hi everyone,

 

Thanks for a great forum!  I joined specifically to look for set up and run help with my Dillon 1050.  Just switched from a Hornady LNL and would like to get the most out of this Dillon 1050 with a Mark 7.  Anyone know of any detailed video tutorials on the set up and running of the 1050?  Thanks ahead of time.

All the old amazing links are broken, but the thread itself has a bit of good info. 

 

 

 

How much reloading experience do you have? If you are used to loading on the red press, you pretty much set the blue one up and run in the same way.

I've been at the reloading game for about 6-7 years.  Several k on a Rock Chucker for precision rifle, probably have put out about 40-50k rounds on the LNL.  I find as my shooting increases the LNL is just not keeping up, even with a case and bullet feeder.  I'm leaving it set up for 223 for now and going to use the 1050 for 9mm and processing brass.  Thanks for the link!

I'm 8 years into a 1050, and 3 with a Mark 7 on it. I have over 250k rounds on this press now.  I strongly suggest you run the 1050 by hand for 5-10k rounds first to break it in. They are temperamental sometimes, and you'll learn the nuances easier by 'feel' that way.  Read the 1050 manual operation and troubleshooting sections. Every jam is unique but typically consistent, and every problem is magnified with automation and speed.  There will be something every 5-10k, sometimes it's frustrating, but everything works out eventually.   And as with many things in life, everything is better with proper lubrication.
